Book Club

Mary Lathram

Described as the book club’s “dynamo,” Mary is a National Senior Olympic medalist, and in her 90’s still competes in the DC Masters swimming competitions.  She and her husband knew Vic Gauthier, which is how she met his wife Mary, and joined the book club. Mary’s husband was in the Foreign Service, and together with their four children, lived an international life, residing in India, Turkey and Korea.  She says the book club has afforded her the opportunity to read a lot of different books, given her friendship, and provided a rich literary heritage.
